‘I didn’t fall in love, I was thrown into it’ - prompt from the lovely @sfjessii!
i’ve never really written the alec + maryse dynamic so i apologize if this came out totally shit 💜
“I should be home in a few hours. I’m sorry; it
seems like it’s becoming a common trend to miss dinner.”
“Don’t worry, Alexander; I understand. You’ve got an
entire Institute resting on those lovely, broad shoulders of yours.”
“I’ll be there as soon as I can, okay?”
“I’ll be here.” Magnus’ tone was bright and
cheerful, and though it was undeniably an exaggeration purely for his benefit,
Alec appreciated it.
“I miss you,” he murmured, his tone warm and
dripping sincerity like honey from his lips.
“I’ve been counting down the minutes since you
called,” Magnus mused. “We’re down to one hundred and sixteen by my
Leaning against the stained glass window, tracing
the ridges in the glass with his thumb, Alec smiled to himself. “I think we can
manage that.” He paused, wanting just a
moment to indulge in relishing the warm feeling blooming in his chest. With a
soft sigh of disdain, he said with displeasure, “I’m sorry, but I’ve gotta get
back to work. I’ll see you tonight?”
“Until then, Mr. Lightwood,” Magnus teased, his tone
lowered an octave in faux solemnity.
“I love you.”
“I love you, too.”
Just as Alec pulled the phone away from his ear,
there was a soft knock on the door of his office. Maryse peeked her head in,
one hand on the door. “Is now a bad time?”
Malec + "You're never gonna let that go, are you?" Please and thanks!
absolutely!! hope you like it!! x
14. “You’re never gonna let that go, are you?”
The sky was dark, velvety purple, dotted with small
clusters of stars and punctuated by the sliver of the crescent moon sending
soft light through the bedroom window. Silver moonlight pooled on the floor and
reached for the bed.
Magnus was lying on his side, sleepily tracing
shapes against the back of Alec’s hand that was draped over his torso.
“That feels nice,” Alec murmured, voice muffled
where his face was pressed against Magnus’ neck. He was littering the skin with
languid kisses and the occasional sharp sting of a hickey that he would drag
his teeth over as the bruise bloomed. “What are you thinking about?”
“It’s a bit silly, I suppose, but I was just
thinking about our trip to Italy. The sky looked a lot like this that night
when we were out on the balcony looking out at the city.” Magnus’s voice was soft
and a bit dreamy as he spoke.
“I loved Italy,” Alec admitted. “The food was
“I’m happy to hear the tiramisu incident didn’t sour
“How was I supposed to know there was alcohol in it?
I’d never even heard of it until we went to that restaurant and you suggested
“I really didn’t think you’d mind the rum,” Magnus
laughed, rolling over to face Alec. “Although I suppose I forgot it’s a bit of
an acquired taste, and you were still lying to me about liking IPAs.”
“You’re never gonna let that go, are you?” With a
groan, Alec tossed his head back against the pillow dramatically.
“It was very endearing, Alexander. I can’t tell you
how long it’s been since someone tried so hard to make sure I was happy. And on
a first date too, nonetheless.”
“I want you to have everything.” While the statement
was weighted down with the complexity of promises, Alec said it with such
simplicity and an undeniable sincerity in his eyes that Magnus felt overcome
Rubbing Alec’s cheekbone softly with his thumb,
Magnus whispered, “If I have you, that’s all I will ever need.”
whatever you do don’t think about alec becoming a fucking robot after magnus gets dragged to edom; don’t think about him powering through paperwork and killing demon after demon with mild satisfaction; don’t think about him going on suicide missions; don’t think about him going home after a long day of work hoping to see magnus sprawled out on the couch going through his own paperwork and instead he gets a dusty flat and cats that miss their owner; don’t think about his family being completely helpless while he wrecks himself slowly; don’t think about the fact that he has a magnus shaped hole in his heart; don’t think about the fact that he’s lost the love of his life (again) and he can’t do anything about it; don’t think about it, don’t
The first time it happened, Alec found a long string
of beads in the folds of the bed sheets when he went to remake the bed.
Magnus was long gone on a consultation, though Alec
remembered vaguely, in his sleep addled brain, that Magnus had pressed his lips
to Alec’s temple softly and whispered, “I love you” before he left. The sun had
been barely above the horizon then.
Alec rarely ever left after Magnus, who abhorred
early mornings, but this time, he had the loft to himself before heading to the
Institute. With the bed empty, he decided he would put the sheets in the washer
so Magnus didn’t have to waste any magic on it tonight. Besides, he liked the
smell of the detergent he’d bought.
As he was stripping the mattress, Alec found the
tangle of jewelry. It took a moment for him to figure out what exactly it was,
running one of the beads between his thumb and forefinger. The slide between
his fingers triggered his sense memory and he suddenly realized it was the triple
looped bracelet. He was very familiar with how it rolled across his ribs when
Magnus trailed his hands up Alec’s torso, shirt rucked up. Sometimes he found
little circle indentations on his skin after being tangled up with Magnus,
their bodies pressed so close together that they couldn’t distinguish their separate
WestAllen is THAT ship. It’s only been 3 seasons and look how much we’ve gotten for WestAllen
We’ve seen Barry & Iris in alternate Earths ie Earth 2 WestAllen
We have a canon AU version of Barry & Iris who are actually married 😍
We’ve seen Barry & Iris find each other in an alternate timeline ie FlashPoint where everything is different
We’ve seen what happens if one half of our OTP dies
Barry was a wreck after Iris’ death. He stopped being the Flash and isolated himself to Star Labs staring at photo of him and Iris 😢
We got 3 first kisses
We got 2 epic proposals
We got a true love’s kiss where Iris actually brought Barry to life
Hell we even have a song written just for Barry & Iris
I have never seen a more epic ship. Certainly not an interracial ship featuring a black woman. The producers don’t always get things right but we can’t deny they’ve pulled out all the stops for WestAllen. I can’t wait to see what they do for their wedding 🙌
